Turning it off is a thought however even from the bug it looks like Dolphin sees it as a picture file so there may be a better way. Is associations the only place file types are kept? Or is there another hidden away. If the association with raw files being picture files can be disabled it will enable me to use Dolphin without problem. There is not a lot of point in click launching them. It's more a case of using "open with". I assume if I go through a program selection process for the 2 or 3 apps that I might use to open raw files they will appear in the open with tab?
Another approach might be to create another association group. I would hope that this is possible? Then I should get the open with options I will need. I hope but again need to know if this info is only kept in the associations system.
Upgrade - NO - Lots of people will run opensuse 11.4 for a long time yet. Probably until 12.3 has been out for some months. I need my machine and have little time to play. I bug report when I can too but the residuals I'm left with can't be bug reported sensibly There are only 2. Well known - machine goes awol for a just about an unbearable time along with much disc tinkling. Kmail - Over maybe a month or probably more of no reboots or kde restarts it may stop receiving mail. Relationship to Kwallet changes ie doesn't ask for a password when kmail starts up and sometimes asks for it before it's started. The later seems more prevalent lately. I'm thinking of bugging that to Novell but haven't found any clues as to why it happens yet. 30 or often more active browser tabs may be something to do with it.
On this Dolphin crash - very recent comment on one of ##raw sites regarding thumbnails - works on gnome but not on kde so far. May be no point in upgrading anyway and I wonder what will happen when I add asro picture formats. :-) The UK weather may improve some day but hasn't for the last 10 years at least other than when it's sub zero.
